In Miel Moreland's heartfelt young adult debut, It Goes Like This, four queer teens realize that sometimes you have to risk hitting repeat on heartbreak.
Eva, Celeste, Gina, and Steph used to think their friendship was unbreakable. After all, they've been though a lot together, including the astronomical rise of Moonlight Overthrow, the world-famous queer pop band they formed in middle school, never expecting to headline anything bigger than the county fair.
But after a sudden falling out leads to the dissolution of the teens' band, their friendship, and Eva and Celeste's starry-eyed romance, nothing is the same. Gina and Celeste step further into the spotlight, Steph disappears completely, and Eva, heartbroken, takes refuge as a songwriter and secret online fangirl...of her own band. That is, until a storm devastates their hometown, bringing the four ex-best-friends back together. As they prepare for one last show, they'll discover whether growing up always means growing apart.

#TIL THE MOON CRASHES INTO THE SEA
THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE BOOK!!!
It’s the book I didn’t know I was waiting for. It’s a book about second chances, and identities, and queer joy. It’s a book about fandom, and community, and finding yourself.
It’s a book that I’m already looking forward to rereading.
I LOVE the colors and gradients! I love the space and music doodles! I love that I can identify all the characters on the cover! I… do not particularly love this style of illustration? I would also like it to have a different font.
